DRFC Yet another dodgy ref coming to the Keepmoat

DRFC Yet another dodgy ref coming to the Keepmoat

Controversial referee Stuart Attwell will be in charge of the game between Doncaster Rovers and Millwall on Tuesday night.

Attwell has recently demoted by the Premier League after a number of high profile mistakes.

Since his demotion, two of his last three games have been in League Two.

The 29 year old has never been far away from controversy and awarded a phantom goal at Watford in 2008 when they ball went out for a goal kick but Attwell awarded a goal.

He was finally removed from the elite list in the Premier League last month after a number of controversial decisions, which included sending off Gary Cahill whilst he was still at Bolton.

Cahill was sent off when Attwell adjudged him to be the last man despite the incident happening close to the halfway line. The Premier League rescinded the red card after Bolton appealed the decision.

So far this season Attwell has taken charge of 21 games, showing 81 yellow cards and 4 reds.

Last season he took charge of 25 games, showing 79 yellow cards and 2 reds.

His last game in charge of Doncaster was back in the 2008/09 season when they beat Cheltenham Town 3-0 in a FA Cup replay at the Keepmoat.

The last time he took charge of Millwall was four days later when he took charge of their FA Cup tie against Hull City when they were beaten 2-0 at the KC Stadium.


Referee: Stuart Attwell (Warwickshire)
Assistants: Paul Kettlewell & Paul Marsden
Fourth official: Amy Fearn

He seems to have calmed down a bit since his demotion. Certainly not flashing the cards as much.
